CGI

Does NetValue allow me to use my own CGI scripts?

Yes, certainly.

Each Linux hosting account has its own cgi-bin folder enabled which you can run .cgi and .pl scripts from. This can be found in the root directory of your hosting space, alongside the 'public_html' folder.

A cgi-bin can be created upon request for Windows hosting accounts.

Please Contact Support to request this.

You will also need to make sure the scripts permissions are set to 755. You can change permissions for hosting accounts on NetValue's Linux servers through your MyPanel access or most reputable ftp clients.
